After securing a $304 million super-max contract from the Boston Celtics, fans are anticipating to see if Jaylen Brown improved his game in the offseason, after disappearing during the Eastern Conference Finals series against the Miami Heat back in May.
Did Jaylen Brown silence the haters?
In his first game of the season did Jaylen Brown silence the haters and prove to everyone he deserves the super max contract?
No his first game against the Knicks turned out to be a disasterclass.
The Knicks almost made a comeback against the Celtics all because of Jaylen Brown’s fourth-quarter meltdown. Over a 30-second span, Brown had a bad pass that led to a Julius Randle three, an inbound pass that got stolen — then to top it off fouling Quentin Grimes on a made-three.
Brown finished the game with 11 points while shooting 4/11 from the field and going 0/4 from behind the arch.
After the game, most fans started to voice their frustration through social media.
One fan tweeted “I am trying to have patience with Jaylen Brown but how are we still having all of these mistakes in costly moments this far into his career It’s just so beyond inexcusable at this point”.
Another fan also tweeted wondering if Jaylen Brown even worked on his game in the offseason.
“Porzingis looking elite but Jaylen Brown definitely didn’t work on anything this offseason,” the fan wrote.
It’s just one game, Boston Celtics fans
This is the first game of the season, so fans are going to overreact to Brown’s notable off-night. It would have been nice for Brown to come out of the gate strong and show everyone why he got paid the super-max contract. But that’s not what we got.
There’s a new offense with several additions to the team so everyone is trying to figure out when is the right time to attack. In the past, it used to be the Jayson Tatum/Brown show, but now the addition of Kristaps Prozingis throws a wrinkle into the mix.
